Memorial Day has come and gone and that means peony season is upon me. I have a total of four peonies scattered about my yard, unfortunately only two are set to bloom this year—not quite sure what happened (or didn’t happen) to the other two. Alas, they are set to open and they are seasonal favorites of mine; and while I’m bummed my purple peony won’t be in bloom this year, I still set my lens on this pink beauty just after I watered the lawn yesterday. Rich golden sunlight washed over the blossom and water droplets, just begging for some photo love. Having had limited time with my camera these past few weeks I was happy to oblige.
